Makeshift 11: Ritual

Formed in 2011 and redesigned with the launch of Issue 9 in 2014, Makeshift is a field guide to hidden creativity. From homemade aircrafts in Nigeria to drug smugglers in Mexico, Chinese hackers pushed up against the Great Firewall to Haitian communities pushing back against marginalization, the quarterly magazine uncovers creative solutions from the economic fringe. Makeshift is part of a new breed of magazines passionate about their content, form, and community.

The Ritual Issue was structured in three chapters with individualized icons: “Work,” “Culture” and “Life.” The issue featured sorceresses in Hong Kong, living statues in Spain or do-it-yourself morticians in the United States among others.
